The beautiful Horton Plains National Park has different sights and fauna to see, but the highlight is The World's End. It is a sheer cliff of about 1,200 m—one of the most photographed and visited sights of Sri Lanka due to its beautiful panorama of the Indian Ocean's coastline. 1,000 m from the main cliff there is a smaller cliff, called Small World's End.

The weather is mostly misty and cloudy in this region, especially in April to September, so it is preferable​ to avoid these months. Try also to get there really early so you get a better view. On your way back from the World's End, you can spot some remarkable animals, such as the Sambar Deer.
